Is it too much to ask that when you are given a time for delivery that the folks delivering your merchandise actually show up when they say they will? Is it? It's the weekend, I have things I want to do. It's the end of the semester, I have things I NEED to do. But no, I sit here waiting for the delivery guys who gave me a FOUR HOUR window for delivery of my new refrigerator. They are now over 1/2 an hour late. That is 4 1/2 hours I have been waiting, prepping, etc. This is a refrigerator -- all of the food that was in the one I will be so happy to see the last of is in coolers. I wonder if my frozen foods are still frozen. I wonder if we are going to be cooking a lot of foods that we otherwise wouldn't have tonight. I wonder if these guys are EVER going to show up!
Oh well, I'm trying to be patient. And I'm operating on the restaurant assumption -- you know, if you need to ask your waiter/waitress for something, they will show up just when you've taken a bite and your mouth is full. Maybe if I blog it -- they WILL come.
IT WORKED! I had barely hit the "publish" button and dh called up to me that they were here!!! New 'fridge in, old 'fridge off to its fate. All the tape off, all the packaging out. Now I just need to put all of the food back in. Ugh. But hooray, a new appliance. Isn't it ridiculous how little it takes to make me happy?
